Avenue Gallery will be sponsoring a fundraising and adoption event to benefit Friends For Life Animal Rescue on Sunday, September 29 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Come out and enjoy an afternoon of art, food and adoptable animals while making a difference for the homeless animal population in Houston.
Avenue Gallery is located at 3219 Houston Ave. Houston, TX 77009.
From the sponsor, “It is the one year anniversary of when we adopted our wonderful black lab Beau from Friends For Life. As a thank you to this awesome rescue, we decided to hold an event to not only help raise funds for this group, but to also find homes for some other adoptable dogs and cats.
There will be a silent auction on art and other donated items, and select artists within the gallery will donate a portion of their sales during the event to Friends For Life. Friends For Life will also be here with adoptable dogs and cats who are looking for their forever homes. Gastro Punk food truck will also be at the event!
If you would like to donate an item for the silent auction, or would like to help in any other way, please contact Taylor Clendennen at email@example.com.”
Friends For Life Animal Rescue and Adoption Organization’s Don Sanders Adoption Center in the Heights is located at 107 E. 22nd Street Houston, TX 77008. Their mission statement, “Friends for Life is moving Houston forward to a No Kill future though programs that redefine "adoptable." We rescue, medically treat, and place animals into loving homes. 75% of the animals we have already placed would not be saved without our unique programs. Our pet retention programs help to keep animals in homes.
Also advancing our community towards a No Kill future are our humane education programs that teach children that animals are not disposable but are companions who deserve our care and compassion. The connection between violence and indifference to animals and similar behavior against people is so well documented it is axiomatic. The lessons of respect and kindness empower children with ways they can make the world better for animals and ultimately better for all of us. While there is immediate rescue work to be done, the path to permanent change lies in changing attitudes about valuing and caring for our companion animals.”
